That's fine unless you plan on keeping very large fish. You don't need a light. It would be more stressful on a new or recovering fish actually. The best way to do a QT in my opinion is just run the extra cartridge on a running tank and when you need to quarantine just set up the tank throw the filter cartridge in and your cycled. Once your done you could throw out that cartridge and put a new one on your running tank for the next time.
